Forward equations for option prices in semimartingale models
We derive a forward partial integro-differential equation for prices of call options in a model where the dynamics of the underlying asset under the pricing measure is described by a -possibly discontinuous- semimartingale. This result generalizes Dupire's forward equation to a large class of non-Markovian models with jumps and allows to retrieve various forward equations previously obtained for option prices in a unified framework.
